Mat Block is a defensive Fighting-type move. It is a signature move of Luchabra.

Mat Block protects all Pokémon on the user's side of the field from any moves except status moves for that turn. Unlike Protect, this move is not an increased priority move. Similar to Fake Out, Mat Block will only work if used on the first turn after the Pokémon enters the field; the Pokémon must be switched out and back in to be able to use Mat Block again.

Feint and Phantom Force will hit regardless and lift the effect of Mat Block from the target's team when successfully used.
